It’s almost Memorial Day, and of course, the extended holiday weekend will no doubt look different than previous years. What was once beach vacations, theme parks and large family gatherings, is now intimate quality time at home with family by the grill.
But don’t get it twisted — that doesn’t mean you still can’t make memories that will last a lifetime at home. There are plenty of ways you can still celebrate Memorial Day in a big way, but you’ll need a few items to help get your home celebration started. And that includes the essentials — grill, gear and grub.
Here’s everything you need (and can still order online) to celebrate Memorial Day at home.
Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Electric Grill
Memorial Day isn’t just the unofficial start to grilling season, it’s also one of the best times to buy a grill if you don’t have one already. With seemingly a new one hitting the market every other day, it can often be hard to find one that gets the job done, is stylish and is affordable. The Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Electric Patio Bistro 240 Grill is all of those things, and it’s small enough to fit in most backyards or patios, in the event you may be short on space.
O-Yaki Skewer System
There is no way to get perfectly grilled kebabs without the O-Yaki Skewer System. It’s a unique standing design ensures even cooking while eliminating the need to rotate skewers. This is a more efficient way to cook meat and veggies on skewers indoors in an oven or outdoors on a grill by allowing multiple skewers to be cooked at once without uneven cooking and loss of precious marinade juices.
The Brooklyn Hot Dog Company
For families looking to “beef up” their menus at home, The Brooklyn Hot Dog Co. offers creative recipes with endless dinner ideas such as Buffalo Dog Dip, Hot Dog and Fried Kimchi Rice, or Beef & Pork Wellington Dogs. What’s more, with their easy-to-follow hydrotasting method, those without a grill can still enjoy the taste of a freshly grilled summer dog at home. These dogs are shipped cooked and ready-to-eat with a shelf-life of up to six months in the freezer, lasting well beyond Memorial Day. Signature flavors include: Classic Beef Hot Dog; Beef & Pork Dog; Gyro Dog; Pepperoni Dog and Buffalo Chicken Dog.
Kitchen Crafted Seasonings
You can’t throw your meat and veggies on the grill without some good seasonings to go along with it. And with Kitchen Crafted’s selection of globally inspired spices and spreads like Sriracha Lime Spice, Kansas City Smoker BBQ Rub, Bayou Catch Seafood Seasoning or the fan-favorite Chimichurri Seasoning to add to your meat, seafood, and veggies, there’s something to satisfy the needs of every palette for the ultimate BBQ this Memorial Day.
The Negg Deviled Egg “Deviler” Kit
Home cooks can mix things up this Memorial Day by spicing up traditional deviled eggs. Stir in either the Cajun, Classic, Smoky Ham or Curry seasoning mixes for perfect deviled eggs every time. Or try the new “Deviler Kit”, which includes a Negg, two packets of Classic seasoning mix, and a chef-grade, reusable piping bag and tip.
